Step 2: Apply For Financial Aid

Make college more affordable

We know tuition plays a big part in your decision, so we’ll work closely with you to identify your options. Education can be affordable – and when you partner with us you’ll discover what’s available to put a private education within your budget.  

Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step toward getting federal aid, which includes grants, loans and work-study funds.

Once your FAFSA has been processed, you’ll receive an Expected Family Contribution (EFC), which is used to figure out how much aid you can get.

After you complete your application for admission, you can then apply for financial aid and scholarships.

Use the Urbana University code “003133” on your FAFSA submission to ensure we receive your scores.
